Thank you so much to everyone that attended the inaugural Venomous Herpetology Symposium! Organized by The Rattlesnake Conservancy and Save The Snakes, the Venomous Herpetology Symposium was held at Zoo Miami, Florida, on September 8-9, 2018. This year’s theme for the symposium was “Bridging the Gap”. Topics we are currently seeking include projects involving partnerships, education initiatives, biosecurity, snake bite management, managing collections of venomous reptiles, venom toxinology, conservation techniques, field research, and other relevant topics related to venomous herpetology.
The Venomous Herpetology Symposium had 169 people in attendance, with speakers from seven different countries and attendees from thirteen countries and many states across the USA. Our organizations are thrilled to have co-hosted this event and are very proud of all of our volunteers, staff, speakers, and sponsors that made this spectacular event possible!
